Crack is most definitely Wack

Wow, Whitney Houstons' sister-in-law, Tina Brown, just totally narc-ed her out to the National Enquirer!


This shocking scene of sleazy mayhem is damning proof of Whitney Houston's tragic addiction — to crack. The National Enquirer's sensational exclusive photo (in this week's issue) shows the superstar singer's private bathroom after she has locked herself away for days on yet another self-destructive binge. Amid the trash, leftover food and empty beer cans are the tools of the hardcore drug fiend — pipes, rolling papers, spoons in which powdered cocaine is cooked into crack, lighters. The picture was taken by one of Whitney's closest friends and relatives — Tina Brown, sister of her husband Bobby.

It is the first time one of the serial Grammy-winner's inner circle has opened the door on the despair and depravity that has led Whitney's family to fear that she is just one fix away from a fatal overdose.

And, according to Tina's heartbreaking revelations, this bathroom squalor is just one small part of Whitney's harrowing world. Tina, 42, knows Whitney's drug habits well. A recovering addict herself, she and her sister-in-law were "drug buddies" for many months.

She confesses: "I did crack with Whitney. The truth needs to come out. She won't stay off the drugs. It's every single day. It's so ugly. Everyone is so scared she's going to O.D." In the most explosive interview ever about Whitney, Tina tells how the 42-year-old singer spends days locked in her bedroom amid piles of garbage smoking crack, using sex toys to satisfy herself and ignoring personal hygiene.

Gawker has some high-res pictures from the article, which I strongly suggest you check out...It is just really, really sad. We need a Celebrity episode of Intervention, stat! Poor Bobbi Kristina!!!

P.S. "using sex toys to satisfy herself"? Another classy move, Enquirer!

Rebecca and The Best Blog Ever

While this news may only be exciting to me and my sister, I almost died of joy when I clicked through on Gawker to find this girl blogging her way through the Baby-Sitters Club series.

Elizabeth and I were seriously OBSESSED with the BSC as kids. And there is so much about it that is really weird and funny in retrospect, which is why this blog is a great idea that I secretly wish I had thought of first. The girl who's doing it has a similar sense of humor about it and points out much of the ridiculousness (Claudia's oh-so wacky outfits, the never-ending 8th grade year that these girls exist within, etc).

Other funny elements that Elizabeth and I have discussed include:

1) Claudia's borderline retardedness- Ann M. Martin tries to play it like she's smart, just not book-smart (yet she specifically tells us that Claudia is not dyslexic!), but her poor spelling is really over-the-top.

2) Mary-Ann telling her BF, Logan, that they needed to "cool" their relationship- it was really getting WAAAAY too hot-and-heavy with all that hand-holding!

3) Ugly Mallory always being described euphemistically as "not feeling too pretty right now".

4) Dawn and her alleged "California Casual" style. Since she's from California, she's a blond, vegetarian, health-food-eating environmentalist.

5) The fact that we learned everything we know about diabetes through book #3, "The Truth About Stacey"

Anyway, as with most pop-culture trash that I'm obsessed with, I could go on forever poring over the minutae of the phenomenon that is the BSC...

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the series, Wikipedia has a pretty comprehensive breakdown. For those of you who know and love the BSC, I invite you to share my glee...

What a prick

As some of you may already know, the latest object of my dis-affection is Dr. Rey from the E! show, Dr. 90210. My hatred for him goes beyond the usual dislike, however, and borders into a rage-fueled obsession.

It's honestly a little scary, but if you have seen the show, you understand that there are just so many reasons to hate him:

1) He gets his scrubs tailored to show off his muscles.
2) His wife is seriously on death's door with depression and anorexia -she weighs 85 lbs- and he does not even notice.
3) His hair is frosted and he wears pin-striped zoot suits to the office (when he's not wearing his fitted scrubs).
4) He is obsessed with tae kwon dao and skipped his daughter's birthday party to go to the dojo.
5) He forces his 3 year old daughter to do tae kwon dao even though she just wants to go to ballet class.
6) He lifts weights, plays with nunchucks, and breaks bricks in the office.
7) He calls his patients' vaginas "adorable", including his receptionist, whose vagina he examines with no qualms about the inappropriateness.
8) His receptionist dresses like a stripper. A really whorey stripper.

Anyway, this is just the tip of the iceberg, I could go on forever...and yesterday he was featured in the LA Times in an article that just adds more fuel to my fire...at least the article shows how his colleagues hate him too. And clearly the writer of the story hates him. Seriously, I challenge you to read the article (or watch the show) and not hate this arrogant prick too...

Jimmy Chew On This

I love this:
Investigating Nicole's Jimmy Choo Ads
If you've browsed through the latest fashion magazines, then you've likely seen Nicole Richie's beautifully photographed Jimmy Choo ads. We were curious how film director and photographer Brett Ratner was able to capture the overwrought drama displayed in the photos, so we asked our in-house photo analysis team to investigate. SCANDAL! They were able to uncover the original photograph before it was transformed with extensive airbrushing:

RehabWatch 2006

I've said it once and I'll say it again, Paula Abdul is my pick for Celebrity Most Likely To Enter Rehab in 2006.

To wit, from the Boston Herald:

Paula Abdul - make rehab your own.

The “American Idol” judge was incoherent on last night’s live telecast, bumbling lines and giggling like she’d just emerged from a Grateful Dead concert, leaving audiences, contestants and host Ryan Seacrest more confused than a homophobic Clay Aiken fan.

When Seacrest asked Abdul why two contestants received the fewest votes, she mumbled, head in hands, “Simon said because one of them ate pizza and the other ate salad.”

A shocked Seacrest responded, “You guys realize we’re on the air?”

Abdul got it together for a few minutes, but during the second round of cuts, she was back to her odd behavior.

“What did you tell me Simon?” she said, slurring her words. “What did you tell me? Simon gave me advice and said on “The X Factor” he always refers to a fortune cookie and says the moth who finds the melon - (laugher) - finds the corn flake always finds the melon and one of you didn’t pick the right fortune"
